2022 Hero Awards

Our very own Executive Director, Heather Ney was honored with the Hero of the Year award for 2022. Along with this, she was also awarded the Community Builder of the Year Award.

The staff at Connect were also nominated for the Community Builder of the Year award. Deb and Diana are shown in the photo with Heather, along with Charity Newnes, the Community Builder Award Sponsor – Searles Shoes.

“I am incredibly humbled by these awards and feel uncomfortable with the recognition. Any achievements are not mine and recognition should be showered upon the dedicated and compassionate people that do the work on the front lines every day. They are the real heroes, making a positive impact on the lives of women, children, families and our communities most vulnerable, and it’s my job to support them.” says Heather Ney
The Local Hero Awards are a celebration of the achievements of individuals within the community.
